Description The Watershed Health Monitoring program assesses streams and rivers across Washington State to obtain a consistent, objective picture of habitat and biological conditions. The program tracks these conditions over time to answer important questions about the overall function and health of our watersheds.

Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) scientists determine watershed health by (1) measuring the physical, chemical, and biological components of Washington’s streams and rivers and (2) analyzing the data for key factors and conditions that affect the success of aquatic species.

During 2021, Ecology will collect samples at 50 streams and rivers in the Puget Sound region during July 1 through October 15.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
